Pagen høit paa Taarnet sad

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Pagen høit paa Taarnet sad,
Stirred ud så vide, 
Digtet på et Elskovskvad
Om sin Elskovskvide,
Kunde ikke få det samlet,
Sad og famled'
Nu med Stjerner, nu med Roser -- 
Intet rimed' sig på Roser --
Satte fortvivlet så Hornet for Mund,
Knugede vredt sit Vaerge,
Blaeste så sin Elskov ud
Over alle Bjaerge.

Genrebild

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Danish (Dansk)

Page saß und spähte lang
Nieder von hoher Zinne,
Schrieb an einem Liebessang,
Thema: Leid der Minne.
Aber ach, ein Abschluß fehlte!
Saß und quälte
Sich mit Sternen, sich mit Rosen,
Fand sich ach! kein Reim auf Rosen.
Setzte verzweifelt sein Horn an den Mund,
Griff an seine Wehre,
Blies über Berg und Tal im Rund
Seiner Frauen Ehre.
